Marvel shuts down Livejournal users (via Big Shiny Robot!)

Individual LJ users have been served notices by the LJ Abuse Team and Marvel regarding copyright infringement. Basically anyone who's posted Marvel stuff on [ profile] scans_daily has been targeted for said infringement. Luckily the text does not mention any repercussions, other than the fact that LJ has removed access to the scans.

Last I read, DC Comics and other publishes are not planning on springing a similar plan of action.

I haven't touched Marvel in years, and the latest news simply cements that decision for me. It also means I'm going to stop buying Ed Brubaker and Sean Philip's Criminal and Incognito, and while that makes me extremely sad I'd rather not spend my hard-earned cash on such a company.
